Have you ever wondered what God is like? You probably have, along with thousands of others. Many people’s view of God can be seen by how they live. Therefore, people tend to try really hard at being good or at modifying their behavior to appease God or make him at peace with their lifestyle.

But what if there was more to it, or even less to it?

This book confronts the restlessness that we all experience…you know, that uneasy feeling that life is not meant to be the way it is. In fact, what if life was meant to be peaceable and not chaotic? What if life was meant for clearer purpose rather than consistent confusion?

This book helps us see where we fall short, but in falling short, we find grace & we find rest, because God is right there where we fall. He is there to redeem us & give us rest from our futile attempts to be like Him. Religion makes one weary, but a relationship with Jesus makes one rested & restful. The trying, the effort, the striving to do good or do right becomes a joyful journey of grace.

The commands that were once sought to be kept, now keep us from experiencing spiritual grogginess.

This book is a great representation of what God is like & how He presents & approaches people where they are. This is a classic book for the skeptic and for the saved.

I received this book free from Kregel Publications as part of their Academic & Ministry Blog Review Service. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
